    Hi,

    We have very peculiar results that we are looking for ideas on what might cause such results. We have a rat RNAseq experiment with 3 groups and three replicate per group. The RNA, library, and sequencing data quality was highly similar and good in all nine samples. However when aligning reads to RNA genome obtain about 8% of sequence mapping to multiple location in the experimental groups, i.e. 6 samples, and 20% in the three control samples.
    Could it be that the differentially expressed genes happen to have repetitive sequences? If one or more genes overexpressed in the controls have repetitive sequences, then you get more multimapping reads in the control libraries. (What do you mean by RNA genome? Did you align to the genome with a splice-aware aligner like tophat? Maybe positing the actual numbers you refer to would help.)

    Weird alignment results

    Hi,

    We have very peculiar results that we are looking for ideas on what might cause such results. We have a rat RNAseq experiment with 3 groups and three replicate per group. The RNA, library, and sequencing data quality was highly similar and good in all nine samples. However when aligning reads to RNA genome obtain about 8% of sequence mapping to multiple location in the experimental groups, i.e. 6 samples, and 20% in the three control samples.

    We have done some preliminary analysis on results and found the following:

    a. While in the two experimental groups about 75% of the sequences map up to 6 different genomic locations and 25% more than 6 locations, in the controls the partition was about fifty-fifty.

    b. Next only the multiple aligned reads were counted and while in the two experimental groups 60% of the read were no-feature about 80% no-feature in controls. I.e. this could not explain the over 20% multiple reads in the controls.

    Can anyone suggest what might contribute to this difference in mapping to unique location?

    Thanks a lot

    Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
    by seqadmin




    The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

    Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
    by seqadmin


    In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
